People have come to me over the years and said to me: 'I admire the culture of Starbucks. Can you come give a speech and help us turn our culture around?' I wish it were that easy.

Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals 'love' them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.
Edwin Way Teale
I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
